The apprentice – you’re hired and highly regarded

Blog from Dr Tracey Leghorn, Chief Human Resources Officer for SUEZ recycling and recovery UK

National Apprenticeship Week is always something to celebrate, but this year – amid all the disruption to schools and young people’s education – it seems more important than ever. If anything, in the aftermath of the pandemic, the value of apprenticeships to trainees, employers and UK Plc is set to grow even faster than it would otherwise have done.

There are several reasons for that, but first I should outline what our apprenticeship programme means to SUEZ recycling and recovery UK. Since 2019, we have supported 146 apprentices on our programme.
